sigh, wish I could retire too!
I have seen a move away from letting agents in recent years & a move back to bringing me rent books to photocopy & receipts in a bag.
I don't even know where to start with this.
cup of tea isn't going to help this one.

they are in Rome, but also they have been & will be on an aeroplane with people from anywhere & also at an airport both in Greece & here in UK where there also many other people from all over the world. we have staff with heart problems & asthma who are becoming increasing concerned as the date for the other member of staffs return to work draws closer!
could our staff with underlying health problems reasonably ask to work from home in this situation?

we currently have a member of staff in Greece, can we ask them to self-isolate on their return rather than come into the office, several members of staff are concerned.

I do understand your point & when I was younger I worked all the overtime offered, however I now work the hours I do because of caring for elderly relative & disabled son, I can't work outside these hours because of this & I know I am not alone.

absolutely, I am an employee & I am very happy that colleagues full of cold do not come in to the office.
Also as an employee, I don't want overtime either.

had exactly the same situation just this week, managed, finally to speak to a very helpful chap on the agent line who actually took all the information from the tax return over the phone & captured it - checked today & all is as it should be.

personally I hate this.
I am in mid 40's but really don't get on with technology. I wouldn't use a computer at all if I didn't have to.
A lot of our clients are over 50, fair amount over 60, they aren't interested in computers & smart phones (of course some are but they tend to be the exception)
In the last few years I have seen a trend away from online banking also.
I think the government has seriously over estimated the amount of people that use computers in their day to day life, most people I know use them for reading the news & buying things on Amazon.

I totally agree with janefg. I have a very high percentage of elderly clients, over 80's, who have rental income, quite substantial in some cases.
These people do not use computers, a lot of them have large ledgers that they record everything in & just bring into the office each year.
A fair percentage of my pensioners are also not good on the telephone as hearing is failing & they hear better when they can see the person talking.
HMRC seem to think that just because they tell everyone to use a computer that they will.
What sort of penalties are we going to be looking at for non-compliance?
